What is a StabiLink?
StabiLink MIS Interlaminar Spinal Fixation System is a spinal implant system that is used in minimally invasive spinal stabilization surgery. The system provides a method of stabilizing the spinal column to treat conditions such as spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and degenerative disc disease. The StabiLink MIS Interlaminar Spinal Fixation System is designed to be minimally invasive, which means that the procedure to implant the device is performed through a small incision and requires a smaller surgical team, less time under anesthesia, and a faster recovery time compared to traditional spinal stabilization procedures.
Who is StabiLink Right For?
The StabiLink MIS Interlaminar Spinal Fixation System procedure is typically recommended for individuals who suffer from spinal conditions such as spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and degenerative disc disease. These conditions can cause spinal instability and result in pain, weakness, and numbness in the back, legs, and arms.
The procedure is typically recommended for individuals who have tried other treatments such as physical therapy, pain medication, and epidural injections without adequate relief. The procedure may also be recommended for individuals who are not candidates for more invasive surgical procedures or who prefer a minimally invasive option.
It is important to note that not all individuals with spinal conditions are suitable candidates for the StabiLink MIS Interlaminar Spinal Fixation System procedure, and that the potential benefits and risks should be discussed with a healthcare provider to determine if it is an appropriate treatment option for an individual’s specific spinal condition. The healthcare provider will consider factors such as the location and extent of the spinal condition, the patient’s overall health, and any previous treatments or procedures.
